Seems like a great project Rob ! Can't wait to hear it when it's all restored.

Ah! 80s - the era of cheese and also great, melodic music! Choose your pick! Unlike today when music is not cheesy but still really not music anymore.

I remember seeing the Pet Shop Boys using this beauty when playing 'live' for Top of the Pops 'Always on my mind'. Pet Shop Boys and friend used this keyboard exclusively to create the 'string' sounds in 'It couldn't happen here'. Just brilliant! I initially thought it was a real string orchestra. It sounds better than some samples found on keyboards today.
